Sway AI partners with Trilogy Networks to join the U.S. Rural Cloud Initiative (RCI) and deliver a complete AI-enabled precision agriculture solutions for U.S. farmers.

According to Sway AI, a developer of no-code AI technologies and services, currently there is no single application that captures all of the data a farmer needs, and the information one farm might depend on to make certain decisions is not always the same for another. To address this, Sway AI and Trilogy Networks are entering a partnership to consolidate information that is to augment decision making throughout the entire production process.

Data from multiple sources and sensors

Using RCI Partner Veea’s edge wireless technology and Trilogy Networks’ digital agriculture platform for optimised farming, Sway AI says it will provide AI applications that act on farm-specific data. Data from multiple sources and sensors, such as drones, robotics, local and historical data, will be combined to provide holistic insights for the nation’s farmers.

The sheer thought of the different technologies and applications a farmer has to rely on can be overwhelming

“Even though more and more farmers are utilising agricultural software and solutions, if you ask any farmer what applications they use, they‘ll most likely have a half dozen or more disparate apps to manage their farms,” said Jitender Arora, Chief Product Officer and Co-Founder of Sway AI. “The sheer thought of the different technologies and applications a farmer has to rely on can be overwhelming, creates a barrier to entry, and also discourages sustained use. As the newest partner of the RCI, we‘ll be able to give farmers using Sway AI unified application actionable data and comprehensive insights for precision farming.”

Trilogy Networks launched the Rural Cloud Initiative in 2020 with the purpose to deploy a unified, distributed cloud covering an area of 1.5 million square miles of rural America.

Digital transformation

“The agriculture industry is ripe to undergo a digital transformation, delivering enormous productivity and economic benefit”, said Nancy Shemwell, COO Trilogy Networks. “AgTech made simple is the key, Trilogy’s FarmGrid is the answer. A digital agriculture platform, simplifying connectivity challenges, delivering and supporting AgTech applications on a single platform allows the grower to see and utilise the data being gathered by a variety of IoT devices. Sway AI and their AI platform applications put the power of the data in the grower’s hands – allowing him to augment his decision-making capabilities with truly actionable data.”
